I was out shopping at our local co-op this week when I spied this...
Then I got home and saw this article speaking about toxins can cause weight gain. Toxins and chemicals are all around us, it is unavoidable.
Don't go crazy, but do what you can to help in eliminating them from your home and body. Eating organically was a huge step for our family but the benefits it brings are irreplaceable. Trading out the cleaning products in your home, laundry and dishwasher soaps, room sprays and deodorants, lotions and soaps are a easy switch now a days with all the wonderful and comparably priced, available products at your small and big box stores.
Using the Detox Bath is a great way to help your body if it is feeling congested, weighted or sluggish. Brain fog, lethargy and muscle soreness are some severe symptoms but what about just feeling tired, hormonal or just plain "a little bit lazy"! This will help. Trying either one will help you feel rested and give you the bounce back into your step the next morning. I think this new Detox Bath- Take II is great for skin rashes, irritations or sunburns too. The added vinegar helps in balancing the pH and soothing the skin. The ginger makes it smell nice too!
